Recap: Giant Step Curated Red Bull Sound Select Show ft. Thundercat, ASTR, & Tondrae Kemp @ LPR – Feb 19

 

Words by DJ Tara

This month’s Red Bull Sound Select, curated by Giant Step, was a journey across not only genres, but regions of the country.

Starting off the night was Tondrae Kemp, who brought some Louisiana funk and blues to the stage. The crowd quickly warmed to his soulful voice, lively band, and songs about love, heartbreak, and everything in between. He gripped the crowd with his version of the Isley Brothers‘ “Footsteps in the Dark (Parts 1&2)” which led nicely into an Ice Cube sing-along of “It Was a Good Day.” Hip hop wasn’t the only unique influence in Kemp’s set: there were hints of reggae and New Orleans Jazz throughout, making for a lively time.

DJ Jon Oliver of I Love Vinyl and East Village Radio kept the crowd buzzing between acts.
